The original Mortar Spider Pig
Mo Spider Pig (and not very happy about it)
Bear Spider Pig
Mason in an action pose:
And last, but never least, Brick in his typical "irritated" expression. Or perhaps he's looking thoughtfully into the distance:
Note how the costume barely fits around him. Our little porker, he is.
Next year I want to try the dinosaur. Hee hee.
Yes, this will indeed be the first Thanksgiving with us for three of our five boys, so...it will be fun. Last year Bear and Mo each got part of a carrot with greens attached as their part of the Thanks-giving. Somehow Brick must have gotten word. Mason is slowly starting to catch on:
And Mortar, ever the angel he tries to be, is attempting to prepare himself for the guests:
And mom is trying to keep her sanity while working two jobs and keeping house with her hubs and animals. I hope everyone has a lovely holiday!
Mo, Bear, Brick, Mortar and Mason. And Shadow.
Coming soon...The Shenanigans continue into Christmas...
Good day, all. I'm Mortar Pigg, coming to you live from The Blue Pigloo. The Parental units recently took time to thoroughly clean the W&aW Gang's cages, a task that was great appreciated as I could seriously catch whiffs of Mason from across the way (*scowl*). Parental Unit Momma was quoted as saying, "...hey, it had to be done. I'm just sorry I couldn't get to it sooner. I put some extra hay in the bins to make up for my lacking..." She's alright, that Parental Unit Mom.
In other news, The Old Men Downstairs have been getting some good quality couch time.
Mo was reluctant to chat and attempted to make a mad-dash getaway
Bear, on the other hand, was content to sit and smile for our cameras
I was able to catch up with Mo later on while he was having some Momma time.
"I just don't like having my picture taken sometimes," Mo says. "That was particularly bad timing, as Bear kept trying to steal my poopies out from under me. I love the guy, but sometimes he just really makes me want to chew on the bars."
I think we can all relate to that feeling. Mason, the next door neighbor, has his own remedies for dealing with stress.
"Hey man, there's nothing a quick dive into the hay rack can't solve. And a post-hay-binge nap is always a nice touch, too." Mason was later photographed partaking in his own advice not long after our interview:
In political news, Momma and Dad keep watching some guy on the TV by the name of Chris Mat-chews. I learned a long time ago not to chew on mats or anything of the sort, so I don't know if this guy really knows what he's talking about. But Dad likes to watch a lot of political stuff, and Brick of The W&aW gang has decided to put his sway behind Obama. And by sway we mean his bum. And we all know he's got a lot of "sway." Brick was unable to comment in time for my report, as he was too busy munching on pellets while watching his candidate on TV, a habit that's becoming a frequent phenomenon with this pig.
Well folks, that's all for the news. Reporting for The Wink and a Wheek Gang, this is Mortar wishing everyone a good wheek and a happy Valentine's Day.
